10:03 am
flooding you get this time of year. the green on this map is the radar and rain. the yellow is where we are getting thunderstorms. from pittsburgh south wards right through ki kwi through the memphis and nashville area is where we are seeing the heaviest rain. the drive from memphis to nashville, a lot of hefy rain and nashville is getting a good soaking. we got rainfall moving through cleveland. and we're going to get drenched as we go throughout the neck 24 to 48 hours. we are expecting two to three inches of rain to make it up into new england. we're not as concerned there as we are in other areas. alex we have to watch out for the potential of tornados down along the gulf coast. new watch issued down around the new orleans area. >> thank you very much for joining us. big developments in libya. rebels say they fought off forces and capturing an oil

port. we are live once again in benghazi. i'm curious how saturday plays into things. is this a day that would be used for demonstrations? are people working? home with their families? what's a saturday like there? >> reporter: well saturday is our typical sunday. it's the end of the week. you know, people don't work on friday. things tend to start opening up saturday afternoon. this would be a time when families are together. what we are really talking about now unlike the situation we saw in egypt where it was students and middle class people coming out in the streets and protesting peacefully, what we are seeing here is armed conflict between two armed groups. these are hebls -- it's a big

get for them. the rebels in this part of the country say they want to push all the way to tripoli. just west of tripoli. that bound being the fiercest in the country. there are dozens dead yet. they are surrounded by tanks and it's a fierce fight for control of the city. >> are they from either camp definitively? >> reporter: the lines keep shifting. the movement, the opposition says its theirs. gadhafi and his troops could retake it. even if they retake it or move further it's important to point out that none of the terminals
10:06 am
have been up and running. it's not like oil is actually getting out of the ports. >> okay. thank you for that update. let's go now to the jobs puzzle here in the u.s. in what the white house calls very good news. 192,000 jobs were added. it is the best showing in nearly a year. overall the unemployment rate dropped to 8.9%. it is the lowest mark since 2009. millions are still out of work and republicans say white house policies are part of that problem. >> despite some signs of life, the unemployment rate is still far above the levels that the president's advisors promised when the spending bill was signed into law. >> let's bring in athena jones. good saturday morning to you. let's get to the president's message on jobs? >> reporter: the president's main message is that things are
10:07 am
looking up. he pointed in particular to the 222,000 jobs in the private sector that were added in the month of february. that's 12 consecutive months, the economy adding 1.5 million jobs over that period. they say that things are looking up. white house officials will acknowledge that there is still a long way to go before they make up for that 8 million jobs lost during the recession. so they acknowledge that. but they argue that the policies they put in place are really helping out. they point in particular to the december tax deal. it lowered payroll taxes, kept the bush era tax rates for people at all income levels. allowing companies to deduct 100% investment in things like equipment. these are the kind of moves that help put the economy on track. when you look at the budget battle, the president argues that even as we have got make the smart budget cuts we can't cut too much and hurt the
10:08 am
recovery. we have got to continue to invest in things like education and things like innovation. >> let's get to the government shut down, the potential of that happening less than two weeks from now on the 18th of march. what's the buzz there? are they confident that government will not be shut down? >> they are confident that they will be able to work something out. the question is how will that come down? they held a briefing the same day that vice president biden went up to the hill along with chief of staff and the budget director. they talked, officials here spoke with reporters explaining what the tactic was going to be. they say they are still confident they are reach a compromise. john boehner is having to deal with the tea party caucus. it's going to be hard to see how it comes down. beneath si

10:12 am
healthier and happier than i have seen him all week. and his so-called goddesses? they're never far from his side. at one point, natty's wearing her devil top sweatshirt. we see his children's art work hanging on the wall as well as his son's sippy cup that sheen has kept on display as a makeshift shrine. all in all, another glips into the real life soap opera that's playing to the camera. >> a little tougher than the average tiger. >> and playing to a huge audience. >> and that, everybody, is my master plan. >> he says he's clean and soeber and just wants to go back to work. at least that's charlie sheen's reality. ♪ >> this whole thing was just a dream. >> but there may be some trouble in paradise.

the crew of the space shuttle discovery docked at the space station to perform maintenance and repairs.
10:18 am
this is discovery's final voyage. when it returns to earth it will be retired and displayed in a museum. >> none of the best known republicans has entered the race for the white house. new polling this week shows mike huckabee leading the list of potential contenders. when the president is added to the mix, gop comes up short. let's bring in pat buchanan and karen finney. good morning to both of you. i was gone last weekend and missed you both. let's get right to some good stuff. look at the comparison between a few key likely opponents. mitt romney is led by nine points and crushing pawlenty. the president is facing some real challenges. if he beats every republican
10:19 am
listed, is it over? >> i think it's -- the poll, kid, is irrel veevant for this reason. look back to 1991. where was george h.w. bush? at 91%. and hen he ran and what did he get? 37%? the lowest republican score in almost 100 years. so that poll is irrelevant, i think. the important one is the romney huckabee hole. and huckabee is going wait for six months before he announces. and romney is out there and deeply organized in both iowa and new hampshire. so if i were looking at that poll, and i were a republican saying thinking of running, which i am not, i would say -- >> heard it here first. >> i would say mitt romney is in what mr. nixson used to call the cat bird seat. >> we're going to get to some of mike huckabee's troubles here in
10:20 am
a minute. when the president is stacked against a generic republican, he has only a five point lead. >> you know, this is a day of firsts. i actually agree with pat in part. >> wow. >> i know. how about that? >> pat's exactly right. these numbers don't mean a lot. so much can happen between now and the time we get to the election between the jobs and the middle east. there is so much that can happen. when you put up the jerer innic number, that's not somebody who has a particular position on any ideas or put forward any plans. it's very hard to read much into that. it's interesting to see what's going on on the republican side. there again it's very early. we haven't seen any of these guys begin to campaign in earnest so we don't have a sense of what ideas are leading in the
10:21 am
pack and who is leading in the pack with their various ideas. it's hard to tell. >> and newt gingrich saying i am officially exploring the option here. i want to ask about mike huckabee. he stirred controversy last week saying that president obama grew up in kenya. then huckabee said this. let's take a listen. >> one of the things that's troubling is that people see natalee portman or some other hollywood starlet who says look we're having children, we're not married. we have these children and we're doing just fine. most single moms are very poor, uneducated and can't get a job and if it were not for government assistance their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. it's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock. >> his office says he was pointing out a reality, not
10:22 am
trying to slam natalie portman. there are a lot of people outraged by this statement. can you see why, pat? >> no i can't. he is saying basically is look. there is a hollywood lifestyle that people celebrate and enjoy and laugh about, and you translate that into the let's take the inner city where 51% of hispanic kids are born out of wedlock, 71% of african-american kids. their chances at life are diminished and the probability that they will wind up as school drop outs, in trouble with the law or in prison sore enormously. those f us who are prestigeous, let's watch the example we are setting for people who can't deal with this type of thing. i thought it was a good statement. i understand why people laugh and mock him. he has a very valid point. >> your reaction, karen? >> having been raised by a single mom, i was disgusted by
10:23 am
this. it shows how out of touch huckabee is with american women and the way we live our lives. one of the fastest growing voting populations happens to be single or unmarried women some of whom happen to be mothers. it makes it sound if you are a single woman raising a child you must be on food stamps it is disgusting. it shows how out of touch he actually is. but you know, also, the troubling comments were also about what he said regarding president obama and his background. you know, again, also very troubling and because the republicans continue to say that democrats keep bringing this up. in this case, huckabee brought it up and i think he brought it up for a very specific reason to tap into the culture wars in a segment of the population that is very concerned about the otherness factor. >> that's what i'm used to.
10:24 am
that first part of the interview i was like really? what's up with that. we will see if you agree or disagree. thank you both. parts of the midwest are underwater and more rain is on the way. break out the waders. plus johnny depp like you have never seen him before. a look at rango's opening weekend at the box office. n. introducing venus proskin with moisture rich shave gel bars enhanced with a triple blend of body butters that create a layer of protection for your skin with every close stroke. leaving your skin beautifully smooth. and your goddess just beautiful. ♪ well, i'm your venus new venus proskin moisture rich. reveal the goddess in you.

10:34 am
the labor talks between the nfl and player's union have gone into overtime. they extend the deadline by one week. and rebels say they are gaining ground today. the rebels say they fought off military forces and captured an oil fort. at the same time forces loyal to gadhafi have broken through not too far outside the capitol. joining me live, the professor of international relations of the middle east. nice to see you again. thanks for joining us. >> pleasure. >> tell me how much the u.s. concern about libya is connected to oil? >> not just the united states. the entire international community, as you all know the price of oil has basically skyrocketed in the last few days. libya is one of the 12 nations in terms of oil production. it affects not only oil production but the prices of
10:35 am
oil, investments, what have you in libya and the region and worldwide. so there is a great deal of concern in the united states and the international community and in the region as well. >> all right. how about depending on the outcome whether or not gadhafi stays in power. is there an obvious successor? >> you know, the situation in libya is extremely volatile and precarious and i think it has already prove on the be more violent and very complex. much more than egypt. you say why? in egypt, the army, you have a coherent army. the most important institution in society. in libya the army has fractured. the state itself in libya has fractured so you have the entire state has collapsed and that's why you have a very violent
10:36 am
situation taking place in libya. the opposition, of course, represents most of the nation in libya. but the reality is, and that's a sad thing to say is that gadhafi has many loyalists. his own tribe. he has mercenaries and his own tribe. that's why not only the situation is very complex and precarious, i would argue the transition owill be much more risky than the one we have seen. >> you mention the tribal position there and she does not want libya to go the way of somal somalia. is that a genuine concern for libya? is. >> you know, really in the first few days of the revolution, we thought that gadhafi's days were numbers. the reality is much more
10:37 am
different. libya is gradually sliding into a protracted civil war. gadhafi has regained his bala e balance. he seems to be on the offenses in many places inside libya. whether we like it or not, libya is divided even though most libyans would like gadhafi out he has a very die hard limited base and that's why the situation appears to be spiralling out of control and that's why libya seems to be sliding into a protracted civil war this is a worst case scenario for libya. it's the worst case scenario because it will have tremendous impact on the unity and stability of the country. >> do you see any situation under which the u.s. would take military action in libya? >> i doubt it very much. in fact as you well know, the united states and most western powers have made it very clear
10:38 am
that western intervention in libya is unlikely. you don't want another war on your hands. s a if you want to really, you have to put western troops on the ground, you are changing the whole situation. now gadhafi against his own people you will give him propaganda, too. he will say i am fighting western imperialism. this would be counter productive not only to the united states and international community but particularly for the opposition in libya, for the libyan people. this is an internal fight between the libyan people. what the international community has been doing is complete the encirclement of gadhafi to freeze his assets. what the opposition needs is guidance. it needs coherence and coordination. and also needs, i have to say it, it needs arms. this will likely be a very
10:39 am
protracted fight and so far, gadhafi has the upper hand because he has major army units, his own tribe, the revolutionary committees and foreign mercenaries. the situation is much more dangerous than we had thought and libya is going to be a very, very difficult case, much difficult and costlier than the other cases so far. >> sobering thoughts but thank you for sharing them. thank you. developing this hour, torrential rains in the midwest. they are threatening severe and flash flooding. warnings in in effect for ohio indiana illinois and other areas. we were wading among the waters. let's see how things look right now. good morning. >> good morning, alex. not too great here in low began county which is in the western part of ohio about an hour north of dayton.
